Tech Talk

TutorTree is a native iOS application that was built using Xcode, Swift and SwiftUI.

The UI is created programmatically using SwiftUI, no storyboard or xib files. MVVM design pattern is implemented to populate the model, communicate with the viewmodel, and update the view.

To handle authorization such as creating an account/login, Google’s Firebase is used. Firestore allows to collect user data such as the information they have provided, sessions, messages, transactions, etc. Storage is used to allow users to upload their profile images.

Heroku works as a server to send push notifications, sms messages, and emails.
